  • Notes 
    • From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=katheriot&id=I2264: "Bona Arsenault, Histoire et Genealogie des Acadiens; 1625-1810; Ottawa, Editions Lemeac, 1978, 6 vols.; p. 1019. Born 1648, a Portuguese 'matelot or seaman, son of Emmanuel & Catherine Spire of the parish St. Croix, Isle Granore, in the Azores. A footnote says that in 1670 he was at Quebec. In Acadia, he lived at Mirande butte (in our day Mount Whattey) near Beaubassin. He married at Beaubassin on 30 Nov 1679 to Marguerite Bourgeois; nine children. Emmanuel died around 1706; his widow married Pierre Maisonnat of Port Royal."

      The same source notes that Winston De Ville's Acadian Church Records 1679-1757 (Ville Platte, Louisiana, 1993, reprint of Polyanthos, c. 1964) calls him "a Portuguese from the parish of Ste. Croix on the Isle of Graise." Graciosa Island is its name today.

      1686 census of Beaubassin, Acadia: 38 years old, no other names given, but the family has three guns, 25 arpents of worked land, 18 cattle, 8 sheep, and 30 pigs. Affluent for their time and place.
